Specialties

Dr. Denise M Barnard has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Thank You

I've been seeing Dr.Denise for a year and a half, and I like her! She has always taken my concerns about my diagnoses seriously. When I tell her about any problem, she treats my experience as valid and doesn't make assumptions or jump to conclusions. When I was diagnosed with ADHD she gave me an explanation of all the medication/treatment options available, and while giving me her opinion based on what would work best. She's also open to trial and error. Overall a great psychiatrist (though sometimes late, but not her fault because the office can be a bit of a mess). but they still have a great staff.

She's ok when there's no one else available no the best. I wouldn't go to this clinic at all if all the other psychiatrists in town weren't busy

Satisfied patient

I arrived at the designated time and place and was seen promptly. Dr. Barnard spent a long time with me listening to my story and helping me to determine underlying issues and a good diagnosis. She was clear yet empathic and was able to keep the conversation focused and productive. Her sensitivity to my instability allowed me to feel safe while she provided me with very important and helpful feedback. That was a new experience for me! We agreed on a course of action which includes medication as well as individual psychotherapy. I highly recommend Dr. Barnard!

Rushed, Impersonal and Disappointing

The first doctor in that office was 3 hours late (not overstating at all), unapologetic and dismissive. Denise Barnard appeared rushed, jumped to prescribe medication without really getting to know me as a patient, and was also dismissive - when trying to describe symptoms and background, she said that if a therapy session was needed, I should arrange one with someone else. It took me months to get in to see her. What a waste of time.
